Helping people make the most of their community is the goal of the Community Design Team (CDT). This program brings volunteer professionals from a variety of disciplines to your locale to assist community members in beginning a process of laying a course for the future.

Since 1997, the WVU Community Design Team has worked with more than 40 communities in West Virginia and neighboring Pennsylvania. The community-centered approach links community residents with students, faculty, and state wide professionals from a variety of disciplines including landscape architects, planners, geographers, architects, engineers, historians, and economic development experts. The final product provides the community with a vision for the future, concrete designs, completed hands-on projects, and energy and expertise to continue the community development process.
